The Button Collective.
The Buttons have had a big year, winning the local National Campus Band Competition, appearing at Splendour In The Grass and Lismore Lantern Parade and have recently recorded an album. Having been to TUF before, they have graciously agreed to appear again, before an extensive East Coast tour and a gig at the Byron Falls festival.
The Button Collective is an exciting gypsy folk band, borrowing elements from traditional folk-dance bands of Ireland and central Europe, spiced with the spirit of the fast-paced bluegrass from America, and all with a very personal and intimate delivery. The Button Collective incorporates accordion, mandolin, fiddle, banjo, harmonica, double bass, drums, and rich, multi-layered vocal harmonies.
Bring your spare buttons, because you will probably pop a few!
Entry $10 / $5
